Welcome to MY’s World!  JAY / JANET / MOM / GRANDMA

As of May 13, 2021,  I have 304 posts on my blog, 41,800 views and 12,100, visitors.  Take a look at the posts.  The topics vary.  Plus, I moved to Paris, where I have lived for one year, from Nice, France, after living for 4 years after the death of my husband. 

I started this blog in July 2016 – just before the death of my husband STEVE ORLANDELLA.  After his death on August 31, 2016, I continued writing. Primarily, I discuss life as an expat in France, living in Nice and Paris, France after retirement from an active life in Los Angeles, California.  I was born in Gainesville, Georgia, but spent most of my life in LA. This is not a current picture – just one I like.  I think I was in my 30’s in this picture.  

Take a look.  Thank you for your interest.
